Why are Osha Certified Boom Inspections important on bucket trucks?

Folk’s all our bucket trucks come with an Osha Certified Boom Inspection completed by SEI inc.  The reason we feel this inspection is important is

1. SAFETY

2. IT’S THE LAW

3. PEACE OF MIND- Accidents happen some are preventable some are not.  Recently there was a story on wgal news about a tree company’s bucket truck mal-functioning.  The bucket arm dropped and struck and killed the man working on the ground.  I do not know the status of the companies truck.  However, if this boom was not inspected, the owner of this company has legal troubles, imagine having to live with the death of an employee if it was preventable.  Now I don’t know the status of that companies truck.  What I do know know is there are many trucks on the road that are being operated without the booms being inspected.
